Hi ,

I'm a student who is currently studying A-levels in Malaysia, and I've always been bothered the fact that we students are preparing ourselves for jobs that don't exist yet and I've always wondered if the education system( which was based on the industrial revolution ) is relevant for us.

It is increasingly evident that many students and teachers seem to be prioritising in achieving grades( I'm not saying that it is a bad thing) instead of embracing the intrinsic values of learning. However, I believe if we want to change something, I think it should start with ourselves.

Instead of blaming the education system, I think it's best for us to question ourselves what can we do? One of the things I can do is promoting the flipped learning, for it promotes higher order thinking, giving students many different nuanced perspectives as it enhances their critical thinking. I believe it is the best solution , given the constraints of the education system that we have to comply.

I'm looking forward to see your opinions.

Hi Faizul,
I flip my lesson often. In fact, I spent my last summer months uploading ALL of my math lessons to www.youtube.com/mrmathblog. There you will find the entire year of Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, Precalculus, Calculus, and Statistics. Click search, then type in the class you need, then you can find each lesson in that class.
